The Flooring That Has Everyone Floored

Home Improvement
When it comes to flooring, there is a lot of discussion. This is primarily because of the variety of flooring material that is on offer. There was a time when wood, ceramic, porcelain or stone tiles were the only options; but all of that has changed. Cork floors have more and more popular for some very obvious reasons. It is used not just in homes but many commercial establishments as well. Just as you have cork flooring fans, there is a large percentage of people who are not even aware that the material exists. Cork has many pluses in its favor including some health benefits that cannot go without a mention.

Cork floors are antimicrobial as they resist the growth of fungi and mold. Those who are allergic to bacteria can breathe easy if there are cork floors instead of carpeted or vinyl ones in their home. Cork is a preferred flooring material for exercise centers, gyms and yoga studios alike. They are comfortable and utilitarian as well. Fitness sessions can prove to have a high impact on joints. Having a resilient floor helps absorb the impact of motion, thus providing the user a more comfortable, less painful workout. Since cork is naturally warm it lends the right background for calming yoga sessions.

Hi-intensity workout sessions like aerobics are accompanied by loud music. Having an acoustic material line the floors and walls helps gyms in making the space as sound-proof and acoustic friendly as possible. Since cork has anti-microbial properties using it in areas that are exposed to sweat and skin is the sensible choice. Everyone is concerned about their own health and the health of the environment as well. Cork is a sustainable natural resource and is extracted from the cork oak tree which can be harvested upto 20 times in its 200year life-span without inflicting any harm on the tree.

All these benefits in addition to the durability and versatility that it offers make it an ideal flooring material. Materials like hardwood and vinyl have VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) that can exacerbate allergic reactions in many people. Children are especially vulnerable to exposure as they tend to crawl around on floors. Having a softer floor that will cushion their tender hands and knees is a good option. Apart from this, since a cork floor is stain-resistant, if children do drop food or any liquid on it, no permanent damage takes place and a quick swipe with a little damp mop is all it takes to keep it clean.

Having a home is a lot of work. Having a big home means even more work and there is always something that is breaking down, needs to be cleaned, maintained, serviced or replaced. It is a definite relief not to have to vacuum your cork floor as you would a carpeted one or ensure that the varnish on the expensive wooden floor has not worn off. With people leading increasingly busy lives, having flooring that practically looks after itself is one way of ensuring you some moments of leisure on your weekend. Sometimes your choice of floor can bring about a change in your life that you may never even have imagined.

Having a Cork Floor installed in your home or commercial establishment can prove to be a boon. cork floors are easy to install and Icorkfloor has skilled professionals who can give you a new floor over a short weekend.
